Perhaps, you will consider Michael Radford's film...

Radford's version is excellent! Hard to top the BBC one, but this one is very well done too. I saw this film for the first time in HS after reading the book. I later watched the BBC version, but I still probably enjoy Radford's film more. The cinematography is stunning and John Hurt is fantastic as Winston.

BRAVE NEW WORLD (1980) was actually produced by Universal Studios in the US for the NBC-TV network. The video you linked to on Google was obviously uploaded by somebody who copied it from a later BBC airing.

This miniseries, originally aired March 7, 1980, was given a lot of press at the time. I distinctly remember it was covered by TV GUIDE magazine with color photos and commentary, as well as in sci-fi magazines like STARLOG.

Saw that one awhile ago and although I found it enjoyable, I don't think it's on par with any of the 1984 films. I liked seeing Spock though!

And R. Burton's last performance. He died August 5th, 1984.
